(The Walker Brothers - reinventing many times before the right combination hit.)

Just prior to becoming The Walker Brothers, Scott Engle (Walker), Gary Leeds and John Maus went through a number of different incarnations before scoring major success. One of their incarnations was under the name The Strangers (they was also known as The Dalton Brothers, but that's another entry in the future and no relation to the U2 side-project), at least that's what they were known as on a single issued by the indie Hollywood label Linda Records in 1964. The track is "Tell Me" an early Jagger-Richards composition that became the mainstay of just about every garage band in Southern California, if not the world, from 1964-1966.

But even this well-worn classic has the unmistakable touch that became The Walker Brothers signature - the Scott Walker voice.
